I must have been the exception to the rule because I never acted that way when I was in the Navy. I was in from age 20-24. Of course since I didn't drink, I was often the designated driver. Not to mention time spent trying to keep my drunk buddies out of trouble. They did provide me hours of free, hilarious entertainment though.
o yeah there's always exceptions. one of my buddies on my last ship was more interested in being a geek rather than raising hell. and his girlfriend was the same. neither one was over 25. and they were great to hang out with.
i learned from them... the people you hang out with should be people you're proud to call friends.
